Using Hi-FAME (High Feedback-Assessment-Multimedia-Environment) Instructional Model in WBI: A Case Study for Biology Teacher Education.
Wang, Tzu-Hua; Wang, Wei-Lung; Wang, Kuo-Hua; Huang, Shih-Chieh
The study attempted to adapt two web tools, FFS system (Frontpage Feedback System) and WATA system (Web-based Assessment and Test Analysis System), to construct a Hi-FAME (High Feedback-Assessment-Multimedia-Environment) Model in WBI (Web-based Instruction) to facilitate pre-service teacher training. Participants were 30 junior pre-service teachers. Each participant was asked to use the Hi-FAME Model to design a website for a CK (content knowledge) WBI. The Hi-FAME Model utilized the WATA system to administrate a formative assessment and to construct reflective questions regarding use of the FFS system in WBI. After two months and fourteen topics of CK the WBI was completed. Findings were: (1) Participants liked to use the WATA formative assessment. The relationship between'Number of uses of WATA formative assessment' and 'Mid-term examination scores' was significant (Pearson=.37, p<.05). (2) FFS system induced more active learning than traditional teaching and enabled participants to more easily and actively generalize, analyze, and internalize the materials as well as to reflect upon their own learning. The WBI with Hi-FAME model is worth investigation by WBI designers and is a useful WBI teaching strategy for teacher education. (Author)
